The Orange County Museum of Art this weekend will honor Irving Blum, legendary director of the former Ferus Gallery in Los Angeles that launched the Pop Art movement's most famous names, for a lifetime of influence on the Southern California art scene. "The motivation for buying art should be rooted in the passion between you and the picture," Blum said in an interview. "If the picture becomes valuable, that's certainly a plus. But it shouldn't be your reason for wanting it. " Blum's thoughts on art appreciation stem from a unique professional palette.

Last week, Lichtenstein was the latest entry in Adams Elementary School's "Art Masters" series, in which students learn about famous artists and then replicate their styles.

According to Gisberto Bertucci, there are two ways to get anywhere in the universe: your imagination or through a black hole. "Why would God create such a large landscape if we can't see it?" he mused Friday morning on a bus trundling down Coast Highway toward Laguna Beach. "In your mind, there are no limits. Or in a black hole, there's no time and no space. If you got through, you could be anywhere. " Bertucci, who lives in a camper parked in a friend's Costa Mesa yard, catches Orange County Transit Authority's Line 1 to Main Beach every morning about 9 at a stop on East Coast Highway.

With Newport-Mesans in the Olympics, contentious City Council elections and those Mitt and Barack guys grabbing headlines, it was a busy year for news — and the arts proved to be no exception. We could try to order this into a conventional "top 10 stories" or some such thing, but because the arts are always playful and surprising and sometimes impossible to classify, we'll approach our year-end wrapup the same way. Here were some of the highlights of the cultural scene in 2012: First Class Couture: The "adDRESSING Titanic" exhibit showcased women's haute couture garments, circa 1912.

For Jay McCafferty, a beloved childhood gift became the genesis of his artistic trademark. "My aunt gave me a stamp collection when I was a kid, which included a magnifying glass," McCafferty, 64, said. "Wherever I went, that magnifying glass moved to the next tool drawer with me. " An art class at graduate school took McCafferty out into the sun and prompted him to try his hand at an activity that he had enjoyed growing up. With the help of his magnifying glass, he created sunburns on graph paper within a grid pattern.

“Not to be shocking means to agree to be furniture.” Scrawled in an upper corner of an Orange County Museum of Art hallway, the phrase suits the times, as three new art shows bring the scandalous, the avant-garde and the satirical to Orange County. The Orange County Museum of Art has launched a major new retrospective of the works of Peter Saul, compiled from the past several decades. Saul is a controversial pioneer of pop art whose works, called “sick jokes” by Robert Storr, the curator and dean of the Yale School of Art, inspired legions of fans.
